Man jailed, suspected in 4 Tennessee slayings

Jacob Allen Bennett has been detained for the killings of four people - who were between the ages of 16 and 22 - found dead in a car off a rural Tennessee road, authorities said.

Bennett, 26, was taken into custody on midnight Thursday, hours after the four victims were found. Authorities have not given a possible a motive in the case nor has Bennett been charged yet, though they've also expressed confidence they believe they have the perpetrator.

"The citizens of Cumberland County and Crossville can rest assured that we have the person who committed the crimes in custody, that the community is safe," said Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Director Mark Gwyn.

    De-generation. An unintended by-product of a free society.

    If they are so certain they have the person who killed these young people, why hasn't he been charged?

    We cannot police the entire world. Their neighbors need to step in. Russia has done well.

    One strike leads to another strike. Then our troops go in to fight side by side with AQ?
    No thanks.
